Here's one of the first tintypes with my new camera/darkroom setup, taken on a 4x5 black metal sheet. This is the last of just three shots taken using the bright California sun and no additional strobe lights. While there was still a lot of set up time to get everything ready for the first shot, it's much less than with my previous setup, the 10'x10' camera tent. See previous posts for a recent progression of the camera system. This week I'll be running some lighting tests with lower power lighting that I've used in the past, but I think it will still work well to capture a crisper image. onto the metal sheet. I'm also working on some framing/mounting options with exotic woods for the 4x5 and 8x10 sheets.
